Constructed in 1899 by Francis S. Kinney, The Kinney Bungalow was originally the site of lavish social gatherings and extravagant festivities. Its East Indian-influenced structural design was most likely inspired by Francis’ time spent as a sailor. Along with his brother, Abbot Kinney, Francis established the Kinney Brothers Tobacco Company, an authoritative enterprise and major player in the 19th-century tobacco industry. From its subsequent changes in ownership to today, The Kinney Bungalow continues to uphold a legacy of hosting unparalleled momentous events.

Beautiful wedding at Kinney Bungalow
Finding the venue for your wedding is one of the first things couples need to decide on, and it can be a disheartening experience when you are confronted with an enormous baseline cost. My husband and I were planning a wedding in Rhode Island from across the country, and we spoke with many venues that had absolutely astronomical baseline costs for a more all-inclusive (catering, cake, alcohol etc.) experience. We went with Kinney Bungalow because it is absolutely unique and gorgeous (the idea of a reception hall makes me gag), allows for flexibility (we could pick the caterer we really wanted- Crazy Burger FTW), had a reasonable price, and Daisy MacLeod was responsive and wonderful to work with. Unlike an all-inclusive hall, you may need to do a little more legwork to hire vendors like caterers, bartenders and rentals. My husband and I actually liked this aspect, since it allowed us to customize for the wedding we wanted. Daisy worked with our schedule so we could visit Kinney Bungalow and was incredibly available and responsive to all of our questions. The actual wedding day was absolutely perfect- we had about 90 guests, which felt great for the space. We had to switch our plan A of getting married outside under the archway to a plan B of having the ceremony in front of the fireplace indoors (a thunderstorm started to brew as soon as my husband and I arrived at the bungalow). This ended up being fantastic, and many guests commented that the ceremony was beautiful, romantic and intimate indoors. We could not have been happier with Kinney Bungalow- it was the perfect setting for an incredible day.Sent on 08/01/2019

We were married at Kinney Bungalow in Narragansett, RI. I cant say enough about the venue coordinator Daisy, as well as the Kinney staff there for the wedding, they were so accommodating and kind through the whole planning process! Kinney is an event space only, and while they have a preferred list of vendors they do allow you the flexibility to choose your own vendors as long as you submit an outside vendor form for approval which let us truly personalize our day from start to finish. This was perfect for us however does require a bit of extra work! The venue itself is on Sunset Farm which made a beautiful backdrop for our wedding. Their ceremony space has hedges around it that were just starting to turn green by the time we got married which gave a bit of privacy, and they are also growing more hedges to make the space even more private from the main road. There was space to do lawn games and have an outdoor cocktail hour which we were hoping for. The inside of the venue itself is a very interesting layout, with a beautiful large center staircase and nice lighting. Even our guests' photos came out beautiful I think just from the lighting, and the space is so beautiful on its own that I think it allows you to do a bit less in décor! We viewed a couple of venues before choosing Kinney and we are so happy we went with them, the venue is truly unique and beautiful.Sent on 06/01/2019

We had our wedding at the Kinney Bungalow on 7/12/14 and booked this date a little over a year before. Lisa was great to work with and was quick to respond to all of our quirky queries. Some of the rules were a little strict, but since the Kinney Bungalow was owned by the Town it makes sense why these are place. Be sure to actually read through the contract before committing. Lisa & Jenny were great about letting me into the building to go over things once more, especially the week before the wedding! The whole staff were great and the farmer & his family are very sweet. Be sure to contact them before taking pictures around the farm!Sent on 07/23/2014
